If you ever wondered how you should apply your BB or CC creams for an ultra flawless finish then you might be interested in the Ecotools Skin Perfecting brush I have been playing with this week.
I am literally obsessed with using brushes to apply my base makeup and honestly wonder how I coped for years just slathering it on with my fingers. Brushes make it so easy and fast and the finish is far superior, in my opinion.
I have always been a little confused about what to use with BB and CC creams because the texture is often thicker and creamier just due to the moisturising element of the product. I worry that the cream aspect will get stuck on the hairs of the brush, thus losing product and also delivering uneven application.
I have been using the Ecotools Skin Perfecting Brush to apply my Philosophy No Reason To Hide CC Cream and I feel it does a brilliant job. I dot the product on with my finger down the centre of my face, and then blend it out with the brush. The angled cut of the synthetic bristles makes application under the eyes and around the nose really easy and the bristle arrangement allows gentle buffing and polishing of the product into the skin.

The result is a really flawless, no makeup look which is exactly what I want from my BB creams. The brush actually reminds me of the Wayne Goss No 1 brush – it has a very similar feel and polishes the product on to the skin in the same way. Very impressive for its £7.99 price tag.
